Today we gathered for a very special grandparents morning. It was an opportunity for the students to showcase their learning and introduce their grandparents to various provocations. It was fantastic to see the children and grandparents engaged and enjoying the fun. Our grandparents were also able to visit the Fish Farm and enjoyed yabbie racing.
Thank you to the parents and grandparents that were able to make it today.
It was great to receive these photos from Ms Roberts of the students enjoying their gymnastics!

Through spending time in nature, children not only engage all of their senses, but learn to better regulate emotions, collaborate, socialise, gain self-confidence and build their resilience – a quality that will follow them into adulthood.

This term we have begun Writer’s Workshop. During this time the children are authors and create their own books. The students have the freedom to create stories based on their interests. Writer’s Workshop fosters their creativity and encourages the children to take risks. It was great to see the children apply a growth mindset and share their ideas and stories with each other.

This morning we explored the following provocations:
- collage making
- construction sensory play
- ozobots- mapping and coding
- shop pretend play (exploring money)
- families and caring for the babies
- digital camera exploration
- making boats
- dancing (gross motor)
- laptop drawing tutorials
Engaging in play enables us to make sense of our world. We were enthusiastic and active participants in our learning. Have a look 🙂
We often reflect on our day with our specks of gold.
Talking about the children’s ‘speck of gold‘ moments from their day encourages positivity and is an opportunity for the children to share their positive stories with each other and express gratitude.
